A couple of weeks early.
Here is a photo of my plants. To lift up the mood from my previous blog post, I wanted these little guys to cheer everybody up.
Thank you so much for all the helpful comments, reading them made me feel a bit more calm and positive. So far, I’m feeling okay, and Felix is slowly recovering.
Now that things are getting a bit better, let me catch you up!
As I said, Felix and I decided to move back to our regular flat, even tho the kitchen isn’t ready just yet. It should be done in less than 3 weeks, but the water has been turned back on, and we have a fridge and boiler in the living room, at the moment, so we figured we could come back here.
Felix is actually setting up his office into the old flat – back to basics! And because of the virus (no matter how much I cleaned, I didn’t feel safe as it can live on surfaces for a while), packing up and settling back into our home felt like the right choice.
Obviously, the kitchen is looking quite messy, and a lot of work needs to be done, but look at these tiles peaking through. I’m so excited to see it all finished!
I received a box full of Crosta&Mollica goodies, which I very much appreciate because everything is made in Italy, and vegetarian.
Snacking on these is going to be a joy. I’ve missed my good ol’ Tarallini and Linguette (although I do find them at the grocery store here, I go through these things real fast) and pouring some crostini in any soup makes it all better.
Thank you to the guys at Crosta & Mollica!
Now onto great makeup additions, I was gifted this highlighter by Milk, and it may not say much from this photo, but….
BAAAM! It’s their holographic stick, and it looks stunning.
It has a beautiful pearlescent look to it. The one I’m swatching is the Mars – Golden Peach shade. They also have a lilac one, which is totally cool if you wanna rock something different, but this one – for me – is probably the best and most wearable option.
Then Tarte sent me their new Clay Stick foundation. It comes in 11 different shades, and what I like about it is that – it coming on this packaging – you can easily use it as a concealer or a bronzer/contour as well as its original purpose, a foundation.
I only ever tried one foundation stick before, and I remember that it had great coverage but it was quite thick and difficult to really blend.
No problem at all with this one. As soon as I put it on my face, it felt like a really creamy formula, and blended really well.
The main thing that really impressed me, is that I was wearing this product, without a primer, on a very hot day, whilst I was running around town, cleaning the house, reading a book out in the sun, and it did not budge. It was flawless. I even went to Felix to tell him.
SO. As promised, here are another 2 boxes you can win!
The first one, let’s call it “BROWN”, includes the Milk stick, a Tarte foundation in Light Beige, a cleanser, an eyebrow palette, a vampy lip gloss, a nude lipstick, a shimmery pigment, some Forest Creature goodies, and the second volume of Forget Me Not.
This other one, let’s call it “GREEN”, has the newest Tarte foundation stick in Deep Honey as well as the powder foundation in Light Beige; then it has a haircare product, an eyebrow pencil, a cleanser, a bright coloured lippie, Forest Creature goodies, and an eyeshadow base as well as the simmery pigment. Oh, and the 3rd volume of Forget Me Not.
The giveaway is now closed, thank you so much for all the lovely comments you left. Here are the two winners:
for the BROWN box.
for the GREEN box.
As usual, new giveaways will come soon! ˁ̡̡̡∗⁎⃙ ̫⁎⃙ˀ̡̡̡ ̩˳♡⃝
